When power is applied, one sub hits fine and the other looks like its being pushed out really hard, continuously.

Sounds like the amp is sending dc voltage to the sub. you probably have bad output transistors in the amp.

How do I wire these mtx 6000 10" inch subwoofer to


The wiring configuration is highly dependent on the amplifier being used. The subs can handle 250 Wrms each, so I would not recommend putting them in any configuration that results in power levels higher than 250 Wrms per sub.

Kicker 12L5 blew from a kicker zx750.1


MY BEST GUESS FROM WHAT YOU HAVE SAID IS THAT THE BOX WAS TO SMALL. BUT YOU ARE OVERPOWERING THE SUB RUNNING IT AT 2 OHMS ON A 750 WATT AMP WITH A SUB THAT IS ONLY RATED FOR 600. NO MATTER HOW FAR YOU TURN YOUR SETTINGS DOWN, YOUR STILL PUSHING TO MUCH POWER FOR THE SUB TO HANDLE. IT IS ONLY RATED 600 WATTS FOR A REASON. ESPECIALLY IF YOU LISTEN TO MUSIC THAT HAS A REAL LOW END AND THEN A HARD HIT. REMEMBER A HARD HIT WILL SPIKE YOUR AMPS OUTPUT THEREFORE PUSHING MORE WATTAGE TO THE SUB.

If i have a 4 channel 2000 watt amp, can i use 1600 watt wires if i only have 2 subs hooked up to it?


Yes, you will be fine. 4 gauge power wire is sufficient for a couple of reasons, the primary one being that most of the companies that are boasting 2000 watts for a 4 channel amp are off brand "web-retail only" companies, and they severely over rate the power output of their amplifiers. Secondly the supposed 2000 watts is peak power and not rms power. Peak power means how much power that amp can put out during absolue climax of the music or during a tone burst. RMS power is how much that amp will put out continously to your speakers or in this case, your subs. If you look at the spec sheet of that amp, in all actuallity you're probably only getting 200-300 watts rms even bridged.

On a side note, if you really want to push your subs hard, you might want to consider getting a mono block or "class d" amplifier and use that 4 channel amp to push your surround speakers. Class d/mono block amps are specifically designed to push subwoofers and will give you the most efficient power out and the best heat dissipation to withstand the output required to drive subwoofers. You'll get better bass and also more adjustability to tweak the sound levels coming out of your subs. Hope that helps.

What would cause my fossgate t1500 to shut off everytime the bass hits hard I have two t12s that it pushes


Sounds like your amp isnt powerful enough to power your subs, whats the wattage of your amp and both subs? Its shutting off when hard bass hits to protect itself from blowing, a good feature as a blown amp means a new one. an amp should always be more powerful than the speakers / subs you are connecting to it. for 2 500w subs your looking at a 1200w amp minimum.

Powered Subwoofer hits hard even on dialogue.


This sub doesn't have a gate (keep the sub from engaging when the source level is low) so it'll "hit" for any input signal. What it does have is an adjustable frequency low-pass filter. If it's kicking in for sounds that don't need big bass reinforcement, try turning the filter to a lower number. The sub will then only kick in for really deep sounds.

Amp problem


depends on what subs you are using that amp puts out a max rms of 150 watts x 2 no kicker brand sub will run of that low of power. the fading you are hearing sounds like the amp is being overdriven and it is hard clipping because it doesnt have enough power for the subs. that amp is designed for mids and highs.

hi

since it is a powered speaker, probably it just needs a sound signal which you can get from the headphone socket. please double check with someone else.

Added another amp to system now subs dont hit as hard


This sounds odd, but try putting your subs out of phase from the mains. Just see if it changes anything.
